Write Different: Z-Write Updated

Stone Table Software has updated their "non-linear" word processing application, Z-Write, to version 1.2. Z-Write allows users to be more creative by offering the ability to store multiple documents in one file, rather that having to manage an assortment of separate related files. According to Stone Table Software:

Stone Table Software is pleased to announce the availability of Z-Write 1.2, a free update to their revolutionary "non-linear" word processor for creative writers.

Z-Write 1.2 adds over forty improvements to the word processor, including new features such as style sheets for quickly formatting text, HTML templates which allow HTML export to be completely customized, import and export of Palm DOC format files, a recent files menu, better word count statistics, an automatic document backup system, and an autocorrect dictionary, as well as many smaller innovations and bug fixes.

The user interface of Z-Write has been enhanced in subtle but effective ways, such as allowing Sections to be dragged from one Z-Write document to another, style commands have been simplified, and text files can be dropped onto a document to be immediately imported as new Sections.

The update also adds powerful text utilities such as Indent, Unindent, Strip HTML, and Remove Email Quotes.

Z-Write is the worldis first non-linear word processor. Instead of the nightmare of managing hundreds of separate word processing files of notes, ideas, chapters, revisions, character bios, bibliography information, quotations, website locations, etc., Z-Write allows the writer to store unlimited documents in a single file!

With support for unlimited Sections of information, Z-Write makes finding and organizing the disparate snippets of text associated with large writing projects a snap. Users are free to organize information any way they want. Move, combine, and print out just the Sections needed. Manage multiple versions of chapters, export a completed book as linked HTML files or Rich Text Format, even view multiple Sections at the same time.

Unlike a personal information manager (PIM), Z-Write is real word processor, designed for handling huge novels and complicated research projects. Unlike "idea managers," Z-Write knows that ultimately your Sections need to be combined to create a uniform piece of writing.

Z-Write eschews the bloat of many of todayis word processors, offering simplicity and elegance. Streamlined for writing, it stays out of your way so you can actually get work done.

Z-Write is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Stone Table Software Web site.
